    Thank you Darren.
    Even though not too much, I have been able to work today more than I could yesterday. I just hope that I do better tomorrow.

    Hi Darren, Beuza,
    Hope you are doing well.

    I am resuming proper work from today. Will be aiming to have it this Saturday or if not feasible by Saturday, will have by 28th at any cost. I will let you know this Friday if I will be able to post it on Saturday or next Tuesday.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Darren,
    I am hoping to put the first version late today PST. I have got most of the part working. There are a few small glitches.

    I haven’t been able to put the image extraction(It is currently converting all videos to h.264 mp4).

    If you can allow me another day, that will be awesome as I can use some extra time. Otherwise, I will put it today.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Thank you Darren.

    That will give me a bit more time to test and cleanup. I am also going to aim for multi resolution and image extraction too now.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    Just updating. The first version will be available in next few hours. I am able to convert mov, flv, mkv and compress mp4 for web.

    I still have issues with avi. Looking at other formats too but most probably, I will be only using the above 4 for the first release.

    PS:- You will need to install FFMPEG on your server to get it working.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi,
    Please download the plugin from here.

    1. Make sure you are atleast on VPS and have ffmpeg installed
    2. https://buddydev.com/downloads/mpplt-local-transcoder/versions/mpp-local-transcoder-1-0-0.zip

    3. For better performance, I will recommend configuring wp cron using crontab.

    How it works:-
    Currently, the functionality is simple. When you upload a video, it gets added to the queue. You can see the Queue from the backend.

    The cron job converts the video to mp4 and updates the queue/media entry. Since the cron job is scheduled at 1 minute interval, you may feel a little delay(2-3 minutes) between the enqueuing and the actual conversion.

    Currently, we do not show the status on front end(You can see it in the backend though). In future, we may do that.

    I don’t see much scope for the plugin as using a local transcoder will not work for sites with high video upload rate. This will work fine for the low/medium(say 500 video uploads per day) site.

    Configuring Cron Job on linux.
    1. Edit wp-config and put this line

    
    
    define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);
    

    It will stop WordPress from spawning cron.

    2. Now, you can use crontab -e to edit the crontab and add a new entry. Add the entry like

    
    
    * * * * * wget -q -O - http://yoursite.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron
    

    Please replace yoursite.com with the actual site url.

    Save it.

    restart cron

    
    sudo service cron restart
    

    And it should start working.

    Regards
    Brajesh
